If you're in the area and haven't been, it's worth the time to visit Clark's Trading Post. I've probably been close to 12 times now over the past 28 years and while the novelty has worn off a little for me, it's worth it for the nostalgia alone. Once inside, all activities are included with the cost of admission. Their... More

I love the bear shows! The train ride is a cute and fun adventure, but watch out for the wolf man!:) Segway tours are awesome! I would go back soon.

This is an amazing place for kids. My parents would take us there many a summer and I continue the tradition. Lots of fun things for them to do. Bumping boats, segways, train ride, workshops and lots of fun stuff. Highly recommended.

To say Clark's is unique is an understatement. It is a wonderful place for the whole family. Lots to see and do. Take your time in the museums and historical buildings. There are so many great things to see and many cool antiques. Follow the history of the Clark family, their early dog sledding days and history with training black... More

Step back in time where there are no animatronics and it is just fun! The bear show is charming for young and old...nothing like watching a bear eat ice cream! The train ride is exciting from start to finish as you wonder where the Wolfman will pop up next. You might want to save the water boats for last....you WILL... More

This is a place where generations of families return to. I loved it as a kid and then loved bringing my children there and now bringing my grandson it never disappoints. Always a fun time. We never drive by without at least stopping to take a peek at the bears.

Not being from New England, I was told that I should visit Clark's Trading Post when I went to New Hampshire. I suppose it had a few novelties, such as the Bears and museums; however, most attractions were very corny and child oriented. I suppose I am glad I can say that I have now been to Clark's Trading Post...... More

I have heard of the Clark's bear shows since I was a kid. We finally visited last summer. I walked in with somewhat of an attitude! - and a concern for the treatment of these bears that do tricks. It was obvious to me from the start of the show, the absolute love and concern this family has for these... More
